Going Down The Road Feeling Bad
Not the first NFA->GDTRFB but the first good one. The Other One good. the drums in The Other One are fantastic. However, a few songs later they do "Good Lovin'" which is MOSTLY drums (and not as good).
Other than that, the only thing this show has going for it as a listening experience is that it's the best of the three Stony Brook shows......but they're all very weak, definitely among the worst of '70. I read that they had their rooms broken into and that there might have been volume concerns at the Stony Brook campus (which explains why the guitars seem to be at a low volume)...that would explain the ambivalent attitude the band (especially Garcia) has. Jerry plays some great licks, as usual, but there are ALOT of "clams" in all four of these shows which to my mind speaks to something else other than just having an "off" night.
Its Halloween tonight. Cosmic Charlie from this set came on shuffle out of 12,000 song library. Feeling pretty good, listening to the rest of the set now. This is great stuff. Recording/mix quality is what it is. I really can appreciate how bobby's guitar playing develops through the year in 1970. I can hear how his chord voicing got more complex by this time that year. good stuff! jerry and phil fit together nice too!

The GRATEFUL DEAD "Live In Concert" October 31, 1970 at the University Gymnasium, SUNY, Stony Brook, New York, U.S.A.
"Classic 1970 Sound"
I bet all the kids showed up in costume this night.
Excellent recording, mix and performance.
I highly recommend adding this show to your 1970 GRATEFUL DEAD collection.
October 1970 GRATEFUL DEAD produced some of the most memorable shows in GRATEFUL DEAD history, this is one of them, 1970-10-04 is another.
October 1970 had a certain sound and feel, this show captures it. During "Good Lovin'" Mickey and Billy are focused and locked in together as if they were one drummer.
The New Riders of the Purple Sage sound great. Thanks for including them.
This is a very exciting show.

'70 and '71 demonstrate what its like for a band to truly define itself and create its own sound and energy. This show, like many of its contemporaries, exemplifies what the Dead will inevitably become.

Great 70's show - I was only about 7 in 70 so was not there - truely love being able to access shows like this and listen. Really enjoy the New Riders section. Nice treat to hear NRPS live in context with GD. Like the slow start to St. Stephen.

Solid 70 show, easily taken for a GD/NRPS night at the Fillmore. Good sound quality. I'm really digging "The Other One". Not the biggest fan of The New Riders, but you've got to love the inclusion of their late night set, allowing you to collect the feel of the entire night.
This was surely one very Happy Halloween for many. And I'll definately be re-living this night through my home speakers come this Halloween.
